Basel III and liquidity – Going all the way

The phased rollout of Basel III from next year is forcing banks to make significant changes to their businesses. Higher capital requirements are encouraging firms to shed risk-weighted assets and withdraw from certain capital-intensive business lines entirely.

In addition, the introduction of two new liquidity ratios will fundamentally alter how banks manage their assets and liabilities and report their liquidity positions - presenting a number of challenges in terms of implementation.

This webinar features a panel of industry experts, who discuss the steps the banking sector is taking now - and the issues that still need to be tackled.

The questions below are just some of those the panel addresses:

Basel III
• How are banks altering their strategies in response to Basel III?
• Which activities are banks pulling back from as a result of Basel III?
• What are the main drivers?

Funding and liquidity
• Are the liquidity rules expected to be implemented in their current form? Where might potential changes be made? What is the timeline?
• What are the challenges in implementing the Basel III liquidity requirements?
• What is the experience of firms in this area?
